Stuck in Endless Loop Windows 10 1511 update WSUS (2012 R2) ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Yet another bug from Microsoft that needs patching, seriously! It's getting tiring now :(

    To fix the endless:

    "There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later."  when deploying update 1511 on WSUS:

    Open IIS on WSUS box

    Go to your Site and in the features box add a new Mime type:

    .esd 

    application/octet-stream

    Then retry the update and all works!

    Come on Microsoft , sort this broken system out it's getting quite annoying now :(  You've already forced me to upgrade my WSUS server from 2008R2 to 2012R2 which was a pain considering you supposedly support 2008R2 for another 5 years or so?

  • I'm just a bit concerned that enterprise users will have PC's that will not recieve any other updates due to this update being stuck in their update list. That could potentially be a big security risk, especially for a business computer.

  • Hi dubsdj-MCITP,

    Sorry for the inconvenience to you.

    Since IIS couldn't recognize the .esd file, we need to add it manually. And win10 is new published, so it will have some imperfect place, if you want to feed back, you may click "windows feedback" to speak your mind.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    Best Regards,

    Anne
